How can I help?

What SciScoop needs more than anything else is for you to share it. If you like this site and would like to help it:

  • Tell everyone you know about SciScoop. Word of mouth is better than any other form of advertising.
  • If you have a website, you can link to SciScoop either via a text link or one of our buttons.
  • Tweet and retweet us, like the posts on Facebook, give us a + on Google+ and all your other social media

How long has SciScoop been around?

Drog started this site under the name of Sci-Fi Today, the evening of November 17, 2002. After six months, he handed the site over to rickyjames effective May 1, 2003. Rickyjames changed the site name to SciScoop to reflect more of a science journalism emphasis, retaining the SFT archive too. Rickyjames took the lead on day-to-day operations for the site, later sharing it with several other superusers (apsmith, Sweetwind, janra). Rickyjames then handed over the reins to David Bradley Science Writer (aka Sciencebase) in April 2005). Four years later, after a period of incredible growth, Sciencebase has now consolidated, rehosted, and redesigned SciScoop to ready it for the next decade.
